I like the mix of typefaces in this happened-upon urban canvas.

I have another picture of this from about a year later. The words are barely visible because of layer of graffiti over them. It's interesting the way the words all pile over each other, ceasing to be legible, to mean anything, and instead creating new shapes and pockets of negative space, so instead of saying anything, the layers of type information (two generations ideas of advertising) become a pictorial image.
